I’m back…

I’m back…

On March 18th, 1995, Michael Jordan sent the above fax in response to questions about his future career plans…it simply said, “I’m back.” Jordan, who retired from the NBA in October of 1993, was playing minor league baseball for the Birmingham Barons in March of 1995... read more

#BucksDraft…

As the 2016 NBA Draft is only a few hours away, let’s look back at the Milwaukee Bucks 1st round draft picks since 2000… 2000 – Jason Collier (15th) Georgia Tech. Collier was traded with a future 1st round pick to Houston for Joel Przybilla (9th... read more

Reality TV…

It has been said that sports are the greatest reality television show there is…and I could not agree more. Who would have thought that Dustin Johnson would win the U.S. Open and the Cleveland Cavaliers would defeat the Golden State Warriors (at Oracle) in Game 7... read more

SOH 14…

Another school year is officially in the books…Summer of Hand 14 is finally upon us! The following clip (from one of my all-time favorite movies) pretty much sums up how most students AND teachers looked as they left school this afternoon around 12:45.  ... read more
Long weekends…

Long weekends…

Some weekends are better than others…and long weekends are simply the best! This past weekend was one of the most fun times I have had yet, here in California. On Saturday and Sunday we attended BottleRock in Napa…and it did not disappoint.... read more
Comedy night…

Comedy night…

Last night, Clara and I took in a stand up comedy show in Oakland (unfortunately, we didn’t see Jerry Seinfeld). I had been craving to see some stand up comedy since we stumbled upon a random show while visiting New Bohemia Brewing Company in early February. So... read more
Golf explained…

Golf explained…

This is how golf is supposed to go…   But THIS is what usually happens…   And for most of us, this is what really happens…   At least it keeps these guys busy…   FORE!!!   UPDATE: Here is the former #1 player in the... read more
Cubs win…

Cubs win…

Cubs win! Cubs win! Cubs win! Holy cow! The Chicago Cubs won their seventh straight game on Sunday (in walk-off fashion) as Javier Baez hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Cubs a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals…completing a... read more

In Ted we trust…

The 2016 NFL Draft (otherwise known as Christmas to Ted Thompson) came and went this past weekend (and I’m still not sure I like this Thursday through Saturday format). So, will the Packers 2016 draft class be a success…only time will tell. But what is... read more
You gotta believe…

You gotta believe…

Last Thursday, the NFL released the 2016 regular-season schedule. Somehow this release has generated so much attention from us, the fans, that ESPN had to run a two-hour schedule show and the NFL Network chose to spend three hours dedicated to just this release. I... read more
RIP Nike+ FuelBand…

RIP Nike+ FuelBand…

After 4,710,354 NikeFuel points, my Nike+ FuelBand has finally stopped working. It was a rather impressive run (as I only had to replace my FuelBand once…compared to my wife replacing her’s about four times). I purchased my FuelBand back in February of... read more
Masters week…

Masters week…

Hello Friends (Jim Nantz voice)… It’s finally here…the greatest week of golf on the PGA Tour calendar! But before we can get into all of that…we have Opening Day and the NCAA National Championship to distract us on Monday. The Brewers…I... read more

I CANNOT stop watching this…the definition of March Madness! WOW…what a game! Thank you Bronson Koenig! Sweet Sixteen…5 out of the last 6 years! See you Friday! On Wisconsin!       UPDATE: I’d be remiss, if I did not mention the... read more

#MakeEmBelieve…

March Madness has finally arrived…and no thanks to the worst Selection Show in the history of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Who would have thought that the entire bracket would get leaked during a TWO HOUR Selection Show (ME…I totally called... read more
T&F…

T&F…

It was the spring of 1992…that was the last spring that I did not participate in the sport of track & field as either an athlete or as a coach. Tomorrow, the track & field season begins for all high schools in the state of Wisconsin. It’s hard to... read more
Steph Curry…

Steph Curry…

There are simply no words for this! I mean…Steph Curry is just flat out ridiculous! Curry is a like watching a human video game…actually he’s better than the video game! But that hasn’t stopped NBA 2K16 from trying…this is almost as... read more

J-Mac and PDW…

Dear ESPN, MORE OF THIS PLEASE!!! Jason McElwain (or J-Mac) stole our hearts way back in February of 2006 when he scored 20 points during a high school varsity basketball game. McElwain, who is autistic, was the team manager for the Greece Athena High School... read more
Duck Fuke…

Duck Fuke…

I HATE DUKE!!! Over the weekend, I was reminded (AGAIN) why I hate Duke so much. In this play, Grayson Allen CLEARLY travels, but no call from the officials (typical Duke). Shockingly, Duke fans were clamoring for a foul on the play…WHERE?! And Speaking of Allen,... read more
NBA All-Star Weekend…

NBA All-Star Weekend…

I love the NBA All-Star Weekend (in Toronto this year)…from the festivities on Friday and Saturday, to the game on Sunday, I love everything about this particular weekend. Back in the day, there were no Friday night events and the slam dunk contest and... read more
The Big Game…

The Big Game…

Super Bowl L (I mean 50), is SLOWLY creeping its way here. I say slowly, because living in the Bay Area has been constant Super Bowl coverage on just about every network for well over a week. Between the countdowns and the live shots from downtown San Francisco and... read more
